What does house rewiring include?
House Rewiring has probably been mentioned to you at some point in your life, but do you know what services include? Installing cables and wiring around your home and connecting them to sockets and fittings is a critical part of a full rewire.
Rewiring a house is a huge project because Thunder electricians need plan out where and how you need sockets, switches and light fixtures for a simplified life, and to future-proof your house for the future.
If you are rewiring your house, you can even consider smart home features like automated lighting, speaker systems that are integrated with smart devices, or smart blinds.
If you do not wish to carry out this work yourself, you may wish to consider additional contractors, such as plasterers and decorators, since these cables will need to be laid under floorboards, within walls and across ceilings, so it is best done when the house is empty. Because electricians will need access to floorboards and will be running cables into walls, redecorating or plastering may be necessary afterwards.
The first part of a rewire is known as the first fix, and consists of installing new cables and wires throughout the house. During the second fix, the electricity is made live and the front faces of sockets, switches, and lights are installed. Putting back carpets, filling holes, and possibly redecorating take place in between the first and second fixes.
A full house rewiring usually takes 7-10 working days and is quite hard. There are a few stages involved, such as:
Preparation begins with opening up the ceiling or floor, depending on where the wires will go. The carpets and floors are always covered to protect them, the drywall is removed, and the wiring plan is made. When all the old wires and electrical points are taken out. New chasing is made, new holes are drilled and cables are put in.
After plastering the walls, repairing the ceiling and floors, and constructing the countertops, the cables will be connected to the switches, sockets, lights, appliances, and finally to the consumer unit.
A final inspection is conducted after everything has been connected to verify and certify the electrical condition.
As experts in home rewiring, Thunder Electricians will work with you to understand your household’s needs. During our work, we will always explain exactly what we are doing and treat your home with the utmost respect.
Is it necessary to rewire your house in Auckland?
Rewiring your house may be necessary in several situations. In Auckland, many older properties have not had electrical work done for over 25 years, so often rewiring is left until a property is sold due to the disruption caused by it. Consequently, if your own or want to purchase a old house, it is better to contact Thunder electricians to inspect the rewires just in case.
It may be time for a rewire if you notice an old fuse box instead of a modern consumer unit, or sockets attached to skirting boards. Building surveys (from independent surveyors, not your mortgage lender) usually indicate rewiring is recommended when purchasing a property. The potential danger of fire or electrocution makes rewiring one of your top priorities in these situations.
It may also be necessary to rewire your property if you are renovating. For example, if you are having an extension built, you will need additional wiring to supply the new rooms in your home, or if you are adding an extension or loft conversion.
It may be necessary to comply with safety regulations for tenants when renting out a house. Thunder Electricians can help you with any rewiring project you may need. As part of our rewiring services, our electricians will work with you to design a plan that takes into account the little additions that can make a big difference.
Among the features we offer are garden lighting, switches and sockets, under cabinet lighting in the kitchen, additional plugs and phone sockets that help you design and install your smart home in a way that meets your needs.
